Financial Donations to Oh SNAP! Student Food Programs
There are a number of reasons why individuals across the country supporting food pantries have found financial donations are the most effective way to support students with food scarcity needs. You can read more about these reasons or watch this short video to learn more about the advantages of ongoing financial support. Please consider pledging just $5 per pay period using the links below. As with most food outreach programs we strive to make every donation count, and monetary donations go a long way in maintaining the quality and sustainability of the program. Monetary gifts to the program go directly to food purchasing and we are able to purchase food more efficiently than an individual shopper, that is why financial gifts are so significant to helping food programs. Donations of this kind go directly to funding our fresh food efforts, including our farm stand.
If you are an HSU Staff or Faculty member and would like to make a month donation that is withdrawn, from your check please fill out the following form and return it to Siemens Hall 215. With a reoccurring donation of even just $5 a month you will make a huge impact on stopping hunger in our student community. HSU Payroll Deduction Form
Financial Donations to Overcoming Health Barriers to Graduation Fund
We all know life can get tough. Unexpected things happen. And, even the most dedicated, hardworking student can be struck by unforeseen medical issues. Unfortunately, when this happens, students who need more than a few counseling sessions to get through a really hard episode of anxiety or depression, or the unlucky few who need to see a specialist medical provider in the community because of a scary diagnosis, simply can’t. Even for those with insurance, the co-pays are often an insurmountable barrier, public transportation isn’t available where/when it’s needed, or the limited number of specialists in our rural community makes it impossible find a local provider with the right training. As a result, students are forced to leave university — a problem that could be fixed sometimes with as little as $20 for a co-pay or $10 for a taxi ride. Health and Wellbeing services are a true force-multiplier, supporting student graduation and this fund increases student success through access to well-trained physical/mental health treatment and prevention resources, helping students overcome unexpected health barriers on the way to graduation.

J-Point Redistribution Program
The J-Point Redistribution program is a way for students, staff, and faculty with meal plans to help students who are in need. J-points (the campus’ food currency) don’t roll over at the end of the year. People with leftover j-Points can donate those points to Oh SNAP and then students who demonstrate a need can receive those points. Students requesting J-Points do not need to have a meal plan. If you would like to inquire about donating J-points email firstname.lastname@example.org from your HSU email account include your HSU ID and the number of dollars you would like to be donated from your J-Point account to the meal sharing program. If you are in need of J-points, email email@example.com, please include your student ID number.
If you are unable to make a (financial) donation, Oh SNAP! Student Food Programs can accept donations of non-perishable food that are within its sell-by, use-by, and/or best-by date. Containers must be sealed, clearly labeled, not dented, or rusted.
The program needs the following items:
Canned meat (chicken, fish), canned soups, stews, chili, peanut butter, beans, canned or dry, past, rice meals, cereal, oatmeal, canned fruit (in water). You can simply drop off your donation to the Recreation and Wellness Center room 122 during regular pantry hours.
